Helloo from Penang again and it's my day 5 in Penang :) Holiday mode still ON hehe. 

Penang island, also known as "Pearl of Orient", offers the best of Malaysian street foods or better known as hawker foods. This is why we referred it as food capital of Malaysia or foods heaven, undoubtedly. And I guess everyone knows what are the top picks in Penang and where to eat. But it's been one big headache, I dunno where to eat in Penang at night time and I only thought of the famous hawker center in Gurney Drive. 

This hawker center in Gurney Drive has a collection of stalls selling all the specialties of Penang but I would say the foods here are not the best that Penangites will purposely go for. Besides, there are also a lots of stylish and elegant cafe, bars and restaurants along the seaside.

First thing I ordered here is the satay, not so nice. U might feel curious why am I ordered satay in the first place before other scrumptious foods. It's just one of my favorite food and they served it fast, just an appetizer while I need to wait for a long queue for the famous char kuey teow here :D

While waiting for the char kuey teow, I bought myself popiah. This is my first time to try on this special popiah which serves together with soup. I don't really like it because the soup makes the thin and almost translucent skin becomes soft and tasteless. The stuffing becomes soft too and ain't taste good. 

We get this fried kuey teow finally after queued and waited for half an hour. Nice one but still I preferred the one in Lorong Selamat - sisters char kuey teow. I will blog about this later.

Laksa is another must-eat-food in Penang. This is the best laksa that I had in Penang. I like its sour and tangy taste, thick with fish meat with a spoon of fish paste and generously garnished with sliced vegetables including onions, cucumbers, red chillis, mints etc. Heavenly taste! *thumbs up*

This fried oyster omelette (Oh Chien) also excellent. I love its fluffy eggy omellete and the fresh juicy oysters. For Oh Chien, I always prefer the one with gooey stick base instead of crispy base.

Another special food in Penang, the chee cheong fun. It's so different from the one I had in KL, it doesn't served together with other ingredients like fish ball, fish cake, fu zhuk etc. Unlike the Hong Kong style also, it is devoid of any meat. It only served with three basic sauces - sweet sauce, shrimp paste and chilli sauce along with a dash of oil and sprinkled with sesame seeds.This is the way Penangites enjoy the chee cheong fun. For me, I enjoy it only with the sweet sauce. Not bad but I can't eat much, too sweet for me.

I ordered century egg as well. I like this together with sliced ginger. 

Last but not least, we ordered a fruit platter :) Be healthy but too bad we can't finish it, stomach too filled with foods.

We bought this roasted dry squid too. Nice one :) 

After that, we take a walk along Gurney Drive to enjoy the sea breeze. So satisfied and so relaxing.

Have u watch the TVB series "My sister of eternal flower"? I myself haven't watch yet and I didn't know there's cute pig pig 猪  toys in the series until my Facebook is overwhelming with the pig pig 猪 posts on the wall. They attracts my attention and I randomly clicked on a photo album. Ohh gosh, they are so adorable. A family of pig which consists of pig pig daddy, pig pig mummy, two pig pig sisters and pig pig brother. I'm interested to purchase a one whole set of it and I start searching for it. Kinda worry of the quality of the toys because they are all hand-made and u can't judge from the picture.

Luck is with me this time :D What a coincident that my friend happened to go Hong Kong to attend a course for 3 weeks. Hence I drop him a mission which is helping me to search for the pigs in Hong Kong. And yea yeap yupez ! He managed to find one dealer and bought me a one whole set which he claims that they are the best in Hong Kong. *So Happy*

Tadaaa, I'm going to share with u the pictures :) So cute isn't it? I couldn't find any in Malaysia that time, but now I see it almost everywhere here in Malaysia in shopping mall. Still I love mine the most which imported from Hong Kong hehe :D

Hi guys. Time flies .__. Don't even notice it had been 1 month plus I didn't keep my blog update and the penang trip update half hanging as well, so sorry. Here's come a short update, more to come soon.

Had a very full filling tea break. Thanks to the awesome Subway buy one free one voucher ;) Of course i don't eat both sandwiches alone, I share it with someone ;) Never thought a subway sandwich actually enough to stuff my stomach and make me do not have appetite to take dinner. Gotta keep my diet plan success! Gotta control my diet, say NO to obese hehe.
